Question about Optics
I have a 200 power telescope that my father built from a kit in 1958. The inside of the tube has had some dirt (like from wasp nests) accumulated, which I have removed as best I could. The finder attachment is also missing. Can this telescope be repaired? Thanks for your advice.
Yes! The problems you've described are simple to remedy. Since your Dad made it, I'd think your motivation should be even stronger.
Try going to www.cloudynights.com for more detailed information. There's an ATM forum there (Amateur Telescope Makers). Those folks can and will help.
